Making a Difference This Christmas: Bridge Trust Supports Refugee Children

This past Christmas season, the Bridge Trust embarked on a heartwarming mission to bring joy to underprivileged children in our community. We focused our efforts on 19 refugee children in Viterbo, ranging from newborns (just 7 days old!) to teenagers (14 years old).

Through the incredible generosity of our donors, we were able to raise a significant amount of funds. This allowed us to purchase a variety of Christmas and New Year’s presents, specifically selecting educational and interactive toys and treats that would spark the children’s curiosity and imagination. More importantly, this initiative served as a powerful reminder of the importance of social responsibility. We all have the ability to make a positive impact in the lives of those around us, simply by showing empathy, love, and sharing our time and resources.
